I am using classic-thesis style for the document, and \bibliographystyle{kluwer} . By default all the citations are given in the Bibliography at the end of the document. For example a citation on a given page will be referred by its identifier lets say [Author 2001] when I use the \cite{author2001}. The full entry of the citation can be seen in the Bibliography at the end with this identifier [Author 2001]. What I would like is that this entry full entry appear on the same page as where the \cite{author2001} command is invoked. Since the classic-thesis supports margin notes it would be great if the citations can be present as margin notes, or even in the footnotes and also in the bibliography. Is there any package / hack to achieve this?

  • Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

The package biblatex can do this; looking at the user manual of biblatex I additionally found "The inlinebib package is designed for traditional citations given in footnotes." I would recommend biblatex tough since it's more commonly used.

An example:



See the \texttt{Biblatex}~\footcite{biblatex} documentation for more information on this.



    author          = {Lehman, Philipp},
    title           = {The {Biblatex} Package},
    subtitle        = {Programmable Bibliographies and Citations},
    month           = {6},
    year            = {2014},
    url             = {http://ctan.org/pkg/biblatex},

This will produce the following output: Result of the code

For more information, take a look at the Biblatex manual.

  • Thanks for the information. I am using tufte-latex style itself which provides the required style of referencing by default
